Information about roadworks in the Wellington and Kāpiti regions.

Major roadworks on the region's state highways for the week Sunday 16 September – Saturday 22 September 2018 are listed below to help you plan your journey.

Well-maintained roads are an important part of keeping people safe. While we aim to do this work with as little disruption as possible, we know that roadworks can be inconvenient. Thank you for your patience while we do this important work.

Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits. Plan ahead as roadworks on the state highway network may affect your journey times.

NOTE: Weather or other factors may cause roadworks to be postponed to the next suitable day or night.

Cyclists and pedestrians:

Mt Victoria Tunnel closed for maintenance, Tuesday 9 October 9pm-5.30am 

 

Mackays Crossing upgrade, Kāpiti

Schedule for completion of current works at Mackays Crossing

The Mackays Crossing Upgrade is almost complete following delays caused by wet weather. The road surface has been strengthened and new asphalt laid. The drainage channels and barriers have also been upgraded.  

This major upgrade has been done before the next stage of the Transmission Gully project to avoid significant roadworks once the new route is open. The timing avoids the need for ongoing repairs to a surface that was deteriorating prior to the upgrade.

In the coming months, the Transmission Gully works will keep southbound traffic to one lane because of project work at the southern end of Mackays Crossing.

A final layer of asphalt will be laid once the Transmission Gully project has finished work in the immediate area. This will be done overnight with minimal traffic disruption.
